What is CCFL?

Unlike traditional incandescent lights that require thermionic emission, CCFL's benefit from operating at significantly lower temperatures. CCFL's are characterized by low power consumption, longevity, close to zero UV emission, excellent Color Rendering, and the elimination of flicker. Having long been used to backlight TV liquid crystal displays, the technology is well proven and an excellent baseline for green lighting solutions. By applying CCFL technology, T1 has developed lighting products that save energy and reduce costs.
